Crooked Horn Alaskan Adventures 2013
The highlight of 2013 hunting adventures for Lennis, owner of Crooked Horn, is Alaska for brown bear and it's just a couple of days away. The anticipation for this hunt has been a killer as you have to wait 4 years in between hunts. It has been a total of 5 years since Lennis has been to Alaska for bears and wolves, where in his career he has taken 2 browns and one Griz with his 375 Ultra which hasn't failed him yet... However, he's battling his ego over the wolves and it seems revenge is on the menu. In Alaska they want you to shoot as many as you can, up to 10 a day in this particular area as there is an abundance of them... Wow, what it would be like to Whack A Pack of wolves on this trip. Wolf hunting is all about opportunity, being in the right place at the right time. In this particular area wolves have been spotted as close at 200 yards away from our camp and even shot in camp in the years past. Lennis and Jeff plan on trying to howl them in... Got to trick this ultimate predator at his own game.
Well the hunt is 2 days away and Jeff and Lennis are busy packing (each bag over and over until each one is 50lbs each), preparing and practicing. Making sure they have the right gear is mandatory for a hunt of this caliber.
Crooked Horn takes every advantage to film each exciting hunt and they have some new action cameras to go on this trip. These film underwater, and can be strapped to almost anything so there is never an opportunity missed. Just like hunting gear, camera gear must not interfere with the hunt (when a quick shot is necessary, you better be able to perform). Lennis has already been designing camera mounts to attach to backpacks and shooting stick.
Over the next week or so we will share some of the highlights for my last couple brown bear and griz hunts so stay tuned..
